Oyez, Oyez, Oyez
The 2016 Baronial Day of Honour is quickly approaching and it is an event not to be missed!! This year on the 15th and 16th October we will not only be coming together to celebrate our Baronial birthday, but it will also mark the First Baronial changeover for our Barony. This of course means it is a Royal Event, with their Majesties presiding over  Baroness Elspeth and Baron Cormacs step down and the investiture of Countess Bethony Gaitskell and Earl Gilbert purchase as the new Baroness and Baron of Krae Glas. There will also be the elevation of Baron Leif to the Order of the Pelican on the Saturday, as well as Heavy and Rapier tournaments, games and of course a spectacular feast.
The theme of this year’s Day of Honour shall be Father Time, Chronos, as interpreted by renaissance England. Further information on the event can be found on the 2016 Day of Honour & Baronial Changeover Event website as well as the Events Facebook Page
